Italy

Italy is an artists paradise full of fashion, art and history with churches and cathedrals scattered down the length of the country. The north of Italy has always been the most prosperous, but the south can provide the same jaw-dropping landscape but with a smaller price tag. In between the Apennines and the Adriatic Sea lies the Abruzzo region full of stunning scenery that rivals that found in the north and nestle into the mountains to watch the mists rise in the morning. Swap Tuscany for little known Umbria to escape the tourist filled streets during peak times, without comprising on the romance. In Apulia, the heel of Italy, you'll find wine and olive oil in plenty supply. It is also becoming popular with investors, because of its striking property feature called a Trullo which has a dome with white walls generally in clusters which create a dramatic effect.
